May 22, 2014 – Following up on the highly successful Music Biz Academy event at the Music Biz 2014 convention, the Music Business Association (Music Biz) is bringing its Music Startup Academy series back on the road with a stop in Seattle on June 19 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Microsoft headquarters. The educational sessions are aimed at aspiring entrepreneurs, startups, and students who dream of creating the next great music product, providing them with all the information they need to break through the barriers of entry and establish innovative, legal, and sustainable music companies.

The Seattle sessions will focus on three key areas: Label and Publishing Basics, Business Development, and Basic Technical Operations. Industry experts from companies such as Microsoft, MediaNet, and Hughes Media Law Group will be on hand to discuss these issues and lend their own personal advice from throughout their careers. During a keynote by startup Lively, representatives will highlight their experiences of starting a company in the music business and discuss their list of best practices for ensuring that your business succeeds.

Admission costs $59 for Music Biz members and $79 for non-members, with a special discounted fee of $39 for students.

The Music Startup Academy was created in the spring of 2011 with the goal of helping entrepreneurs and app developers navigate the complex web of rights, legal requirements, and potential partners and competitors that stand in the way of young music companies’ success. By providing an educational platform on the key topics of licensing, business development, and technology to entrepreneurs at all levels, the sessions aim to lower the barriers of entry to the music industry and foster the next generation of innovative music apps. The first Music Startup Academy was held at General Assembly in New York City in 2011, and it has since traveled to Atlanta, Austin, Boston, London, Los Angeles, Nashville, and San Francisco.
